Aire and Calder Towpath Trail

Andrew has commented on the recent opening of the Aire and Calder Towpath Trail.

Andrew reports, "The official opening of this new trail took place this morning. Sadly, I couldn't attend but this is a project I have long supported and worked towards. The idea of a new cycle way along the canal came up years ago when two pupils from the area brought the idea up with the local Councillors at the time, Caroline Fox and John Barrett (now retired). Rory and Ben might be adults now but at least we got there in the end!

"Thanks especially to East Riding Council for pushing this and meeting me several times to progress. Eventually, we secured funding from the Government's Rural Development for England to make this happen. Happy cycling and walking along this new 6' 6" wide hard surface trail!"
